    "Excursion"

    I wrote a version of my "Excursion" for the Garritan Authorized Steinway piano.

    Sweeeeet, Mr. A - You're in top form with this.

    Is this the close player's perspective on The Steinway? I noticed the wide stereo field, high keys to the far right, low keys to the far left.

    And you're doing OK with The Steinway now? Sounds like you are, but I recall you had some technical issues at first.

    Did you play with the EQ on this? It sounds especially bright.

    Thanks for the cheerful jaunt on the ivories!

    I have only the basic Steinway.

    I don't know why you are hearing such widely-separated channels. I mixed both hands in the middle. (?) Strange. I added just a touch of highs to the file.

    Hi, Larry - Thanks for the info. Actually, it seems to be true of all the versions of The Steinway, that there's a fairly wide stereo field, and that can be great for solo Piano recordings. I didn't mean that I didn't like the effect.

    When using the various Steinways mixed with other instruments, a few times now I've split the stereo tracks into two mono tracks so I can narrow the field down some.

    I'm not sure what you mean, that you mixed both hands to the middle - how?---But take a listen - it's nice, high notes reach to the right, and vice versa.

    The EQ, I felt you must've boosted the highs a bit, it's more tinkly and brilliant than usual. I've done that too, to help it stand out in a mix.

    Thanks, Larry.

    I utilize two simultaneous instances of the Steinway and assign the bass clef to one insertion and the treble clef to the other insertion. That way, I can pan the "hands" any way I wish. I normally pan the right hand to a setting of ten right and the left hand ten left.

    Hi Larry, Well however you mixed this, you have given both "hands" a good work out with this "excursion"! This is like a cardio-pulmonary exercise for piano players. Thanks for another fun tune! John

    ...and thank you, Mr. John, for taking the time to listen.

    Why are you up so early? (I have an excuse. I am old and don't require much sleep. )

    Larry, same thing here. Lately about 4 hours sleep is it for me. The rest of the night is spent in a stupor.
